Dragon is the hardest form IMO and quite frankly this old bod of mine just isn't up to it, i have developed a much more relaxed style, when i practise at all, which is rarely these days.


It's a lot of hard work. The exercises at my shaolin school were strenuous and we had people able to do double back somersaults. I am also on a break.


We always practised full contact,and with real weapons. Once i fainted & once my Sifu broke a rib by accident...that is however not the reason i stopped, simply that other things of greater importance than my own personal development have taken over my life...yet i still hold all his teachings sacred to heart, he was recently promoted to Shao-Lin Grand Master. and rightly so, he taught me a lot in a short time.
You may also be amazed to find he is a Muslim...........


pics or didn't happen

The way of the Tao is to go.
Water always finds its level.
Be as water.


Never ready, always take action, truth sits plumb even when the water is low on the left.
There are times when no action is the most powerful action. Be wise in how action is applied.
wisdomapplies itself to familiar experiences and penetrates every barrier so never lost.

Interesting, today a read a quote by Bruce Lee in a book: “‎The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.”

Ah, I see you've stumbled upon the gate-less gate in relation to art. In a broader sense it encompasses all things, as it is the ghost or consciousness in ones machinery and thought is just the free will programming ability to program your own machine as an autonomous human being... and is typically more of a hindrance than a help. My advice? Now that you've seen the Ox, grab and tame it.

Only half joking here -

"But what if the whole reason you want there to 'be' magic -

- is that you really,really hate practicing things over and over?", she said in the whining, grating, high-pitched tone of a spoiled child...

That is very true. Repetition brings about a manifestation which is connected. It can be in any aspect of our lives.

Sounds like a Kung Fu movie, bragging about who work or fist is better...My Tiger claw Kung Fu will slice your Bear style Kung Fu in two.

They should of made the story of Jesus like this...FIst of the Morning Star.

Just watch the last 40 seconds, it made me laugh, they should of made the story of Jesus like this...FIst of the Morning Star.

mmm, i only like the Jet Li films, he had the style


Hey i'm not bragging, you think to admit a 67 year old man broke my ribs is bragging?
I do have some rare pics of this guy in action, i will have to dig them out the archive PC sometime.
OK so i'm not Arnie but i'm pretty well built, worked in the metal industry for 20 years LOL but still he kicked my butt, and i only got hurt because i wasnt concentrating when he landed on me.......

All the real gungfu moves are based on animals, the philosophy is simple & it works, copy nature.
That was the whole deal in the karate kid films (LOL the crane is a chinese move not japanese but hey this is hollywood), the story that the crane defeated a tiger is plausible. Flying through the air isnt, but if you practice leaps & jumps it is quite amazing how much distance you can cover in a short time, to other peeps it looks like you are flying.
Not speaking of myself at this point, the only time i appear to move faster these days is when i pass wind.
